Appointments

Appointments System

Grenoside Surgery offers a drop-in service every day between 08:45 - 10:15. At other times consultations are by appointment and can be booked in person at reception, over the telephone or online via the link at the top of this page.

We also offer extended hours at Grenoside on Tuesday evenings weekly between 18:30 - 20:15 and one Monday per month for pre-booked appointments only.

Telephone Advice

If you feel your problem could be dealt with over the telephone rather than by attending surgery you are welcome to call our Grenoside number, 0114 240 3159. Please call before 10:30. The receptionist will take brief details of your call along with your contact number and you will be called back by the duty doctor after morning surgery.

Practice Nurses

In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.

Chaperones

If you would like to have a chaperone present during an examination please tell the receptionist at the time of booking the appointment.

Interpreter

If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and she will arrange this for you.

Late For Your Appointment

Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.

Extended Practice Hours

We provide a late evening surgery on Tuesdays between 18:30 - 20:15 (and one Monday per month). There is also a practice nurse available at these times. Please note this is for pre-booked appointments only and aimed at those patients who are unable to attend during normal surgery hours.

It is not an emergency service and requests for urgent appointments will still need to go through our Out-of-Hours provider.

Additional appointments are available at five Satellite GP Hubs across the city. Click here for more information.

Training Practice

As a training practice we often have medical students present at the surgery. You may from time to time be asked to speak to one of them prior to your consultation with the doctor as part of their training.

Whilst we appreciate your co-operation you are quite free to say no if you feel uncomfortable.

Home Visits

Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception before 10:30.

You may only request a home visit if you are housebound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house calls

You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
